US-based online survey software provider QuestionPro has launched a trivia, quiz and polling platform called LivePolls, to both 'engage and excite' audiences and help understand their preferences. One aim is to allow firms to check in with currently home working employees on a regular basis.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, QuestionPro offers tools for the creation, distribution and analysis of surveys, as well as a platform for polling, tablet-based mobile research and data visualization. LivePolls is free and requires no login, and has been developed to gather feedback, test knowledge, and create 'spirited interaction' at both virtual and in-person events.
The solution provides a platform for real-time, interactive polling, trivia and competition, with timed questions and points for correct answers and for the speed of response. Presenters and respondents can view a leaderboard which ranks respondents, and real-time results are available to help understand audience preferences after each question. Finally, a dashboard offers an understanding of device usage, 'top' respondents, accuracy rate and other factors.
Founder and CEO Vivek Bhaskaran (pictured) comments: 'It is important now more than ever to find a way to engage with one another and promote emotional empathy amongst your coworkers, students or attendees. There can never be too much fun in the world and QuestionPro looks forward to bringing the laughs, competition, and party to your calls, webinars, and future in-person events'.
The firm also has teams in the UK, Germany, the UAE, India and Mexico, and is online at www.questionpro.com .
